Goodreads asked Jacqui Henderson:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Jacqui Henderson The idea for Mosaic came from reading Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively. Lovely book if you can lay your hands on it. It got me thinking about the desert war, how far from home they were, so many different nationalities thrown together like that and all the Common-wealth graves that stand tribute to their sacrifice and bravery. Also the song Why worry? Specifically the version with Mr Knopfler and Nana Mouskuri version, which is so very soulful. From these two sources Lillian Loveday came to me and it is her story that I wanted to tell.
